Our Campaign Story

ends 28 Jul 2017, 11:59 PM

Whenever I participate in a run, I want to do so for a cause and help raise some support for something I care about and that I feel could help make the world a kinder, more just or beautiful place. Runs are not about the goody bags but the good we can do through our participation.

I will run this race to give thanks that my family members who are survivors. I will also run in memory of those who fought a good fight but were taken home. Cancer touches so many of us and like many diseases, can be prevented or managed if identified early. So I run also for awareness of early detection screening and more fundamentally to remind myself and others that good health: nutrition, rest, exercise and most importantly a merry and grateful heart, is often the best preventive medicine.

About NPO

The Singapore Cancer Society (SCS) was established in 1964 by individuals from the Rotary Club of Singapore West, the Lions Club and Jaycees, and was inaugurated by the then Minster of Health, Mr Yong Nyuk Lin.

Registered as a society in 1984 and accorded IPC (Institution of a Public Character) status as a charity in 1995 by the Ministry of Health, the Society is also a member of the National Council of Social Service and the Singapore Hospice Council. SCS celebrated 50 years of service in 2014. Being self-funded, the Society is heavily dependent on public donations to provide quality services to cancer patients, their families, and members of the public.

VISION
To be the leading charitable cancer organisation in Singapore and the region, with a reputation for effective programmes for the prevention and control of cancer.

IMPACT STATEMENT
To be the first port of call for the entire cancer journey for all cancer patients in Singapore, especially those who are financially disadvantaged.
